      His unqualified embrace of the Buddha's worldview in intelligent and deeply thoughtful prose.. distinguishes his work from many other Western Buddhist books. Along with reflections on mindfulness, impermanence, and the end of suffering, Bhikkhu Nyanasobhano is not afraid to delve into the topics of rebirth, karma, nonvirtue, and the roles. The Tibetan Book of the Dead recommends that the devotee meditate on the Dhyani Buddhas so that their wisdoms will replace the negative forces he has allowed to take hold within. Each Buddha rules over one of the directions of space and one of the cosmic realms of ether, water, earth, fire and air.
